According to members of our family a Canooter Valve doesn't exist, kind of like a box of grid squares, Until NOW.
The goal was to produce a full auto rated suppressor that was hearing safe and make it the most compact unit available anywhere. AND, keep the price of the suppressor and tax stamp under 500.00 so that normal folks can afford it.
These Canooter Valves will transfer to your NFA Dealer on a Form 3.
ALL NFA RULES APPLY
Follow these steps if you're ordering a Suppressor:
Once the suppressor is ordered/payment made online you'll need to find a local Class III dealer that you'd like to work with for your transfer (it will be mailed to them). Once you choose a dealer, please have them send a copy of their FFL & SOT to this email address (with your name/order# in the subject line). If your dealer needs this request to come from us, just let us know. Once we receive copies of your dealer's licenses we can move forward and submit the Form 3 paperwork to the ATF. Upon approval we will mail your suppressor to your dealer. All tax stamp (Form 4) paperwork is handled through your dealer.
I have mounted mine on a Springfield Saint Edge MSR and am very pleased with the results. Initially, I had to adjust the gas block in order to permit the firearm to properly cycle; this involved removing a non-variable screw in the gas block and replacing it with a variable screw --- this simple procedure, and all parts, were provided with the rifle at purchase and the how-to description in the owner's manual was easy to implement. After this adjustment, the firearm properly cycled with no further issues. Such adjustments are common with suppressor installation. The sound reduction is very good -- I still wear an ear plug in my left ear (I shoot right handed) but use no protection in my right ear. Of course, the firearm is still loud but I absolutely consider it to be hearing safe. That said, if the shooter desires to engage in very rapid fire usage, I would suggest usage of ear protection in both ears just to be safe. In any event, again, I stress that the sound reduction --- especially in light of the size, weight, and price of this suppressor --- is very good. Using Lehigh Controlled Chaos 62gr from Gorilla, this firearm is extremely accurate and a pleasure to use in the field. Fed Premium 69gr Sierra Matchking LE Tactical also pairs very well, very accurately with this firearm. In short, the Canooter Valve is a great product.
Very effective for a small can. No change to carbine balance or handling characteristics. Barrel can be cleaned with unit installed.
